Iff you look at the image 83262 It is the collection red topped tube. I dropped a small piece of the specimen and added KOH .3 mls of KOH. At first the KOH turns Orange yellow then that brown color. I am finding this true for a lot of different species of fungi. Some have no affect on the KOH leaving it clear or tepid but some like Galerina turn KOH Black. I noticed this last year with a Leccinum turning the KOH a brilliant Red. Iv also notice the KOH turning a color but having very little affect on the small piece I put in the sample container.
the brown color in the KOH. or do you mean that
the specimen turned brown? also did you try one with just water to make sure?
